Strategic Plans and Goals
On November 5 - 6, 2013, the UCA Executive Committee and UCA staff held a strategic planning meeting in Seattle, Washington where we developed a strategic plan for UCA, outlining the major goals and objectives for the next three-to-five years. The UCA Executive Committee approved this strategic plan in April 2014.
